Rapid Response Roundtable: Protests in Nigeria
Seattle, WA, USA
Over the past several weeks, protests have erupted around Nigeria calling for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), an elite police unit long accused of violent harassment and human rights abuses. Despite the disbandment of the unit days later, the protests continued, with protesters demanding broader reforms in Nigerian society and government. In addition, these protests have turned violent, with dozens killed and curfews imposed across Nigeria. What are the implications of these protests, and how do they tie into broader geopolitical issues around the region? Join the World Affairs Council on Monday, November 2 from 12:00-1:00 PM PDT for a rapid response roundtable discussion with Anietie Ewang, Nigeria Researcher at Human Rights Watch, on the Nigerian protests against police brutality.
This is a free members only event and registration is limited to allow a roundtable discussion. Only current Council members can be approved for registration. Members who register outside of business hours will see their approval come through the following business day. The link to join the program will be sent the morning of November 2.
